Cutcliffe repeats as ACC CoY, named national finalist

Posted December 3, 2013

After leading Duke to a 10-2 regular season and the ACC Coastal Division title, Blue Devils head coach David Cutcliffe was named the ACC Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year Tuesday.

Cutcliffe has also been named one of three finalists for the Maxwell National Coach of the Year joining Gus Malzahn of Auburn and Gary Pinkel of Missouri.

The 10 wins are the most in school history as the No. 20 ranked Blue Devils prepare to play No. 1 Florida State in the ACC Championship game Saturday in Charlotte. The Blue Devils’ 10 wins in 2013 are  also as many victories as the program had for the 2000 through 2007 seasons combined, prior to Cutcliffe’s arrival in 2008.

Cutcliffe was the choice of 62 of the 65 Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association members casting ballots. Boston College first-year coach Steve Addazio received two votes, and Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher received the other.

Cutcliffe's repeat honor marks the first time the Blue Devils have had a back-to-back ACC Coach of the Year recipient since Steve Spurrier was named in 1988 and 1989.

“(I’m) very appreciative of our staff and all of the support people that surround Duke football,” Cuttcliffe said. “It’s the best group of people, including the entire Duke football family – best group of people I’ve been around.”

The Blue Devils will make consecutive bowl appearances for the first time in school history and Duke closed out the regular season with eight straight wins, tied for the fourth-longest win streak in school history.

The winner of the national coach of the year award will be announced on Dec. 19, and formally given the award at a gala in March.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who led the Seminoles to a 12-0 regular-season record and the top spot in the BCS standings, was named the ACC Rookie of the Year after receiving 56 of the 65 ACSMA nods.

On Monday, Duke assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Kurt Roper was named one of five finalists for the Broyles Award, an honor presented annually to the top assistant coach in the nation.

“We are certainly so proud for Kurt with this recognition – it is truly deserved,” said Cutcliffe, who won the Broyles Award in 1998 while a member of the staff at Tennessee. “I know what the award stands for and without a doubt Kurt Roper has earned the opportunity to stand next to the finest assistant coaches in America. “

Duke’s offense is one of just four in the ACC to compile 20-plus rushing touchdowns and 20-plus passing scores, doing so for the first time in school history.

Roper is joined by Rhett Lashlee (Offensive Coordinator, Auburn), Philip Montgomery (Offensive Coordinator, Baylor), Jeremy Pruitt (Defensive Coordinator, Florida State) and Pat Narduzzi (Defensive Coordinator, Michigan State) as finalists.

    Props to Coach Cut. The National Coach of the Year honors should be a mere formality. I mean, he did lead Duke to 10 wins...

    Nope. Race isn't part of the equation; I'm talking about the entire football team in general.

    He not only deserves coach of the year for his performance, he also deserves it for his high character. I don't have as much information about the other two as I have about Cut. But I doubt either has a higher degree of character. Given where they are coaching, I would guess that high character is not at the top of the list of job requirements. I would vote for him soley on that.

    Despite what the Gus Bus has done at Auburn and the ACC being a weak conference, if Cutcliffe doesn't win National Coach of the Year, the voters should be banned from voting......forever. If you lead DUKE to 10 wins in a season, it should be yours....hands down, no questions asked. Maybe the voters will do the right thing.
